I Hate It When Someone Doesnt Text Back

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,729 People

    I really like text sessions.

    Ones that just carry over and on throughout the day. It's like that person is right there with you, experiencing your day with you. Then sometimes things will to this soap opera level of intensity and then.... The lapse. Ugh! It's hard to unglue yourself.

    It truly sucks when your talking to some one

    for a while and they don't respond for few days! Makes you feel like you did something wrong!

    It's more than hate especially

    when you know they read it and just didn't respond !!! Even worse if your trying to discuss something

    Oh the irony of "Read @ 12:45.

    " Or whatever. Seriously, texting back, "Your annoying", is WAY better than not being answered at all. Guys this is for you from a girls perspective. Even if it's honest, do it. It makes the girl feel their not worth it.

    I'm wayyyyy better than my teen years,

    but it TOTALLY sucks when you have a convo going and then the other person disappears. It's like, 'where'd you go??' I liken it to speaking with someone in person, and all the sudden the person just begins giving you the cold shoulder. I often forget that it's much closer to...

    If you don't message me back I will

    automatically think that you hate me and probably never text you again in fear of annoying you.

    I ESPECIALLY hate when they don't text back

    until, like, 5 hours later. And the conversation is already stale (because it was just dormant for five hours), and you know that, and you know THEY know that, too. All you can do is sit there and stare at the response and do nothing about it because clearly, they don't want...

    Sending a text/message then getting ignored is

    the worst thing ever. It's like you annoy them and that they don't want to speak to you. It happens to me all the time..😒

    and I told him I liked him and he said he liked me back and we talked a bit and he just all of a sudden didn't respond back but he posted a snapchat story after. Should I message him and ask him what I did? Idk what to do.
